    Honda Civic 1.6 i-DTEC SE review

    By 7 May 2013

    "Economical, isn't it?", proclaimed the man from Honda who came to pick up our Civic diesel. Given that he was talking to the lead-boots of the Pocket-Lint office, this was a risky statement. It’s not unknown for us to at least halve the official fuel...

    Honda CR-V 2.0 iVTEC EX review

    By 28 December 2012

    Everyone loves to hate an SUV, don’t they? Yet, as our recent review of the VW Touareg attests, even those of us who hate the breed can’t help but be won over and see why they’re so popular with modern families, after a week behind the wheel. And...

    Honda Accord Tourer 2.4 EX Auto review

    By 10 March 2007

    I'll make something clear up front: I'm currently working out what company car I can afford to run, and I was close to discounting the Accord Tourer because it's just out of my budget range. Since having one on test, I’ve decided there are some things...

    Honda Civic 2.2 CTDi Sport review

    By 31 July 2006

    If there’s one car that’ll make you change your mind forever about diesels it’s the extraordinary new Honda Civic 2.2 i-CTDi Sport. In truth, the Civic is a gem no matter what combination of fuel and capacity you choose to stuff in the engine bay,...
